Carlton Fields announced today that it has launched CyberAPP, a free cyber incident response mobile application. From incident response checklists to state breach notification laws, CyberAPP puts the guidance businesses need to protect themselves against increasingly advanced cyber threats just a fingertip away.

“With the proliferation of cyber threats, clients understand that preparation is critical to mitigating cyber risk,” said Joseph Swanson, co-chair of Carlton Fields’ Privacy and Cybersecurity practice. “If an organization becomes the victim of a cybersecurity incident, a fast and thoughtful response is very important. CyberAPP is a highly accessible way for organizations to become better prepared and to respond appropriately if they experience a data breach or similar incident.” 

In addition to the active breach guidance, CyberAPP helps businesses prepare for cybersecurity incidents by providing sample security policies, recovery checklists, tips for small businesses, and links to the appropriate government authorities and resources.

“While regulated industries have had several years to familiarize themselves with the requirements and guidance of their respective principal regulators (i.e., GLB and HIPAA), the cyber landscape never rests,” added Josephine Cicchetti, co-chair of the firm’s Privacy and Cybersecurity practice. “Businesses — regardless of size and industry — still need guidance in compliance, countering threats, and handling the aftermath of a cyber incident. Although our CyberAPP is no substitute for legal advice, the information there will help businesses stay informed and provide starting point resources.”

The CyberAPP is available now from both the iOS and Android app stores. For more information, please visit the app’s complementary website: cyber.carltonfields.com
